It’s Friday (finally!) and we could really go for a celebratory cocktail. Not just any libation either, make ours a caipirinha. Yep, we have Brazil on the brain and, more specifically, the breezy beach bar at Txai Itacaré in beautiful Bahia… Saude!
STYLE BAREFOOT IN THE PALMS
SETTING THE ECO-COOL COCOA COAST
WHY THIS WEEK?
Once you settle into your jungle-shrouded bungalow and claim your stretch of unspoilt sand, it will be hard to leave. Why not stay a little longer? Now through October you can nab five nights for the price of four with this exclusive offer. Plus, if you’d like Christmas to come early this year, book your December escape before the 19th of October and get 10 per cent off four-night or seven-night holiday stays that will have everything – meals, transfers, holiday feasts – all sorted and tied up with a bow for you.
OUR FAVOURITE BITS
The exclusive Shamash Spa doesn’t have just treatments, but rather, rituals: purifying, relaxing, beauty and some heavenly thing for the feet called ‘step on the clouds’. Purifying soaks, hands-on energy healing sessions, hot stone massages and energy-renewing practices are just some of the ways to shed stress and revive.
MR & MRS SMITH SAY… ‘When checking out of Txai Itacaré the only concern you’ll have is that you didn’t take advantage of every last lounge-worthy locale on the property. After all, with 227 acres, you have a lot of ground to cover. No doubt you’ll start with the chaise right outside your private rainforest bungalow. You’ll spend some mornings luxuriating on the beach with fresh coconut water in hand, and others parked near the breakfast buffet to catch a whiff of freshly-baked Bahian sweets. Keep in mind, there are five pools at Txai, including the spa’s hilltop stunner, so unfurl your towel and get to relaxing as soon as possible.’ Read our full anonymous review.
